This Video of Rep. Nadler Getting His Glasses Tangled in His Mask is Just… Perfect

A microcosm of now if ever there was one

I’m not sure how many times I’ve watched this video, but I’ve watched it a lot and I’ve snorted, because it’s just… perfect.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) walks out and gets his glasses hilariously tangled in his mask. A mask that no longer matters because with rioters and looters galore, social distancing is so May. And the scarf. THE SCARF. It’s all too much.

Being a regular glasses wearer, I’m not unsympathetic. I’ve encountered this situation more than once and mumbled a few colorful words through my floral-patterned mask, but anyway, just watch:

And the scarves? The pandering is so pathetic and offensive. Really, this:


The idiocracy is here. At least it’s funny?

Those are not scarves, they are tallit (Jewish prayer shawls). No, sorry, no tzitzit, so I guess they are just scarves after all.

    Also genuine talletim are not scarves, they cover the upper body too, and the head.

    And they’re almost always white, with black, blue, or white stripes. When you see someone wear a multicolored tallet it’s usually a sign that you’re dealing with some sort of odd person, probably a new-age hippy-dippy type, who will turn out to be some sort of SJW as well,

    Interesting etymological fact: The Hebrew word טלית (“talles” or “talleth”) comes from the Greek word στολή (“stolé”), which means “garment, equipment”, which has come into English as “stole”.

    So if I’m interpreting the colors on his kente scarf correctly. the message he’s sending out is

    wealth, royalty, harvesting, political, bloodshed.

    Got it in one!

The vid was altered (reversed halfway), but still funny on a humor level.

That happens to me at least once a day.

If you haven’t seen Obianuju Ekeocha’s response to this shameless cultural appropriation, you can find it: here

Read yesterday where someone called it “political black-face”.

    Someone online was referring to it as a new Superhero — the Black Pander.

    I enjoyed that; too much, perhaps…

      Best related comment I saw was that they should concentrate on fixing their cities instead of dressing up like a Wakandan chess set.

The glasses thing happens to me all the time. Fortunately I can get along without them for most things

I had never heard of Kente Cloth, so I looked it up.. From what I read, gold signifies royalty and wealth..

Did these idiots have a clue??

Can someone explain why these white Congressional Reps are wearing scarves emblazoned with what appears to be some sort of African tribal pattern? I understand the virtue-signaling, self-congratulatory sanctimony of it all, but, really, this is simply ridiculous self-aggrandizement and phony posturing.

Jabba be funny! He’s about as coordinated as a monkey loving a football.

Glasses off, mask off, glasses on. I do this all day long.

Though I wear glasses (since 1965), I’ve not had this issue as wearing a mask is not something I do unless the business demands…then I wear it on my chin. Most masks are useless unless you’re involved with someone sick or in tight, enclosed quarters. And I have yet to see anyone wearing them correctly.

Given that the infection, hospitalization, and deaths have all dropped as summer has started to arrive, anything less than a fully open and functioning economy and state is criminal. In short, masks are chiefly virtue signals, not medical supports…much like the TSA is security theater.

    Since I will not be shaving my beard for this nonsense, I purchased exactly one (completely ineffective) turtleneck-style mask, against any occasion where a property owner demands I wear one. It reads, “HEALTH THEATRE.”
